July 5, 2021 to July 16, 2021

Getting up close and personal with our community was the theme for the first half of July as the team participated in a number of different AMAs and online conferences. We’re also really happy to share that Witness has been garnering quite the industry support with not one, not two, but three partnerships under its belt.

We had the opportunity to chat with Polygon community where our Co-Founder, Deli, shared more about our initial vision, what we’ve done so far, and where we’re headed. There were many great questions and we really enjoyed our time with the crowd. For those who missed it, a recap:

Hello, welcome to the Polygon community 🙂 Could you please tell us a little about yourself and how Automata came into being?

We’re excited to announce our partnership with MathChain, the Layer 2 blockchain based on Substrate. Through this collaboration, we will extend support for Witness to developers and projects on the platform, further building out private, off-chain governance in the Polkadot ecosystem.

The integration of Witness is motivated not only by the privacy aspect of the governance solution, and we’re equally excited about extending the same easy-to-use experience for our community to discuss, participate in and play an active role in MathChain’s growth.

For background, Witness offers gasless voting with the option for voters to…

Our Co-Founder @deligong was at last week’s EthGlobal’s MEV.wtf summit, and we have him here with us to chat about some of the (important) updates on the topic if you were away and missed the event.

Take it away, Deli.

Hey, guys! Excited to catch up with everyone.

Bringing off-chain governance and MEV Minimization to the scalable protocol

Delighted to share that Automata Network is live on Polygon bringing its privacy-first tooling solutions to the scalable protocol; the first being off-chain, private governance via Witness. A voting service with zero gas fees, communities can create and vote on proposals with ease by connecting their wallets and the governance tokens contained within on Witness. Automata will also offer support to DEXes (“decentralized exchanges”) based on Polygon with Conveyor, an MEV Minimization solution.

For an introduction, Automata Network is a decentralized service protocol that provides privacy middleware for dApps across…

Happy to share about our partnership with Moonbeam Network with the integration of Witness to bring private, off-chain governance to the Polkadot ecosystem. Through Witness, dApp builders and developers on Moonbeam will be able to participate in gasless voting without revealing their personal identity or vote.

“The most successful projects employ formal governance mechanisms to manage important decisions. We want to provide Moonbeam developers with a rich set of integrations to incorporate governance into their protocols. …

June 14, 2021 to June 25, 2021

How is it the end of June already? Yet another whirlwind two weeks here at Automata, but happily things are picking up steam alongside the tech development, and we also have a couple of announcements to share. Here’s a quick snapshot:


[Protocol and infrastructure]

Thrilled to announce our partnership with Pocket Network to once more bring privacy to the forefront of the burgeoning Web3 economy. If you’re new to them, Pocket Network is a decentralized API protocol connecting blockchain applications with infrastructure providers and node runners.

“Our protocol-agnostic, decentralized infrastructure is designed in such a way as to open up universal access to the world’s public data. Partnering with Automata Network is yet another technical leg-up as it brings an additional layer of privacy and resilience for dApp builders and data consumers within our thriving ecosystem.”

- Michael O’Rourke, Co-Founder of Pocket Network


Excited to share about our partnership with DARWINIA Network to introduce Witness to the growing bridge hub. For the uninitiated, Darwinia Network is an open cross-chain bridge protocol built on Substrate, connecting to other heterogeneous chains by cross-chain transfer of assets and remote chain calls.

“Native blockchain ecosystems are flourishing and herein lies a rising demand for more robust governance solutions. The quest for interoperability will intermingle with other Web3 born and bred identities such as autonomy, such as participation, such as privacy.

- Alex Chien, CEO and Co-Founder at Darwinia Network

In a multi-chain future, the work of projects…

May 31,2021 to June 11,2021

For a long time now, we’ve been wanting to share more concrete progress around what’s been happening in the Automata ecosystem, especially since things are moving rapidly. One way of doing that is by keeping our communication channels open and gathering feedback and ideas from the crowd — we’re on Discord, Twitter, Telegram, for instance — and moving forward we hope to improve upon that by providing updates on a regular basis.

Community is important to us, and we love to share more about our journey, challenges we are facing, and important milestones we are…
